Tonight, while we were playing Chutes & Ladders with R before his bedtime, the phone rang. It was Mike, one of A's friends who we haven't seen in awhile (even though he lives only a few blocks away from us). He asked if he could come over for a few minutes because he had something for us. This made R extremely excited - to the point where he was waiting on the back steps in the rain for Mike to arrive. But when Mike came, his surprise was a single, perfect, peach rose for me for Mother's Day. I am just so touched and humbled by his thoughtfulness.
So, Lord, please bless Mike tonight. Thank you for the overwhelming kindness of friends and for the little surprises that you send my way. Amen.
